Johnny Manziel, known as “Johnny Football,” has allegedly profited from autographs and is being investigated by the NCAA, according to a report.
ESPN’s SportsCenter broke the story about Manziel, a quarterback for Texas A&M, being investigated.
If the NCAA finds that he indeed profited, his eligibility to compete next season is in jeopardy, ESPN pointed out.
Last year, Manziel became the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy.
